Well in two days I will be 20 weeks-so much for being on top of things. Please excuse how horrible I look. This picture was taken after a long day. Instead take a look at the baby bump that is beginning to grow. I have not been taking weekly pictures until this point because not much was changing-I guess Baby Box was ready for more room.
How far along: 19 weeks(in the picture)
Size of Baby: The baby is about the size of a large tomatoe. Roughly 8 1/2 oz. and 6 inches long.
Maternity Clothing: I went shopping this past weekend and everything is short sleeves or sleeveless. I purchased one pair of pants, a skirt, and 3 t-shirts. I still fit in my jeans but with dress pants I must wear the belly ban. Dress clothes have been the hardest.
Gender: WE FIND OUT APRIL 11th!!!! I am so excited.
Movement: I am starting to feel more than just little flutters. This baby is going to be a little mover and shaker I can already tell. I can feel the baby most when I am sitting or laying down, but I do feel little kicks when I am standing too. The baby also seems to enjoy listening to the band play because during the concert Monday night I believe the baby was dancing. Patrick has been able to feel the baby kick about 2 times so far.
Sleep: I enjoy sleeping- I wish I was not up and down so much.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach or back. I get so paranoid when I wake up to go to the bathroom and I am on my back or stomach. Caffenine- Most days I do not have any but every once in awhile I will have some chocolate or a small soft drink.
Cravings: So far I have not had many cravings but when I want something I want it immediately. I really like orange juice and lemonade.
Symptoms: I am mostly good. I do get really tired at times and I get dizzy sometimes.
Things People Say: I haven't had many comments yet. I'm sure they will start coming soon.
Words of Wisdom: None at this time.
Best Moment this Week: Patrick and I went to Omaha and purchased our nursery furniture this past Saturday. Not baby related we also got to see Rob and Jill and get caught up with them over dinner.
